2009 Story Slams open at the Kimmel Center before Ira Glass
Okay, we haven’t picked the 2009 themes yet, but we might as well announce that the 2009 StorySlam season will open just a hair early with a special slam on Saturday January 24th at the Kimmel Center for FREE. The regularly scheduled slams resume on the following Tuesday the 27th back at L’Etage, and every 4th Tuesday of the month thereafter. Here’s some more info on the event on the 24th:
Saturday, January 24
6:30pm | Commonwealth Plaza Stage | Free in the Plaza
First Person Arts Story Slam
First Person StorySlams are real-life-storytelling competitions. Each slam has a theme which elicits stories from the life experiences of Philly’s storytellers. Who are these local tale spinners? Everyone with a story and a little sense of competition is encouraged to participate. Join us for a free First Person Arts Story Slam in the Commonwealth Plaza prior to the ticketed evening with Ira Glass event in Verizon Hall.
Free in the Plaza events are part of the Wachovia Gateway to the Arts Program made possible by a generous grant from the Wachovia Foundation.
